Bed Bugs Minneapolis

Bed Bugs, are small parasitic biting insects, also know as blood sucking Vampires. The term usually refers to species that prefer to feed on human blood. Yes, they can be seen with the naked eye and adults are as large as an apple seed, while nymphs are as small as a dot. Bed Bugs are rapid breeders, producing tens of thousands of offspring in just a few months. Furthermore, Bed Bugs are the Hardest Pest to Eradicate in the entire industry, even for trained professionals . Bed Bugs spend up to 90% of their life time hiding and the other 10% Breading and Feeding on YOU. Finally, Bed bugs generally are a nocturnal animal and dislikes bright lights, but if needed, they will come out in the day light to feed.

Bites
Everybody reacts differently to Bed Bug Bites, and some people have allergenic reactions to Bed Bug Bites. Studies have found up to 75% of people react to Bed Bug Bites, leaving about 25% of people not responding to bites. As people get 65 and olde,r 50% of these people do not respond to Bed Bug Bites.

Early detection and treatment are critical to successful extermination. According to a survey, the most commonly infested places are the mattress (98.2%), box spring (93.6%), as well as nearby carpets and baseboards (94.1%). In fact, bed bugs thrive in areas where there is an adequate supply of available hosts (HUMANS), and plenty of cracks and harbor-ages within 5 feet of the host, YOU as your sleeping. Another survey had the Couch (most used) and Mattress tied. But we have found, Bed Bugs can and will be found almost anywhere.

Because treatments are required in sleeping areas and other sensitive locations, methods other than chemical pesticides are in demand, like HEAT TREATMENTS. Treatments can be costly, laborious, time consuming, repetitive, may entail health risks FROM USE OF PESTICIDES, and cause embarrassment to the person affected. We are discreet as possible, not having names on our uniforms and Vehicles. Privacy and Discretion is why The Bed Bugs Guys are your choice.

Heat Treatment


The Bed Bug Guys have the highest success

rate in the Entire Industry, our warranty proves it.

Room or building Heat Treatment

This method of bed bug control involves raising room temperatures to or above the killing temperature for bed bugs, which is around 45C (122F) and higher. We then hold this temperature for a few hours.; moving the hot air using industrial fans to get the Heat to penetrate inside the walls, mattress, clothes and all crack and crevices where Bed Bugs Hide.

Our Heat treatments are carried out by professionals, and may be performed for homes, Hotels, Condo's, Apartments, Dorms, and so much more. Professional heat treatments are an expensive procedures. But using chemicals first with out success will certainly increase the cost of exterminating your Bed Bug infestation.

Following a heat-treatment, a room may be easily re-infested, as bed bugs are the best Hick hikers. That is why it is so important to figure out if possible, how you got Bed Bugs in the first place.

Clothes dryers

Clothes dryers can be used for killing bed bugs in clothing and blankets. DO NOT USE A WASHING MACHINE FIRST. Infested clothes and bedding is placed in the drier for at least 20 minutes at high heat. However, this does not eliminate bed bugs in the mattress, bed frame and surrounding environment. Sterilized fabrics from the dryer are thus easily re-infested. Continually treating materials in this fashion is labor intensive, and in itself does not eliminate the infestation.

Fire

More and more people are burning down their homes or even entire apartment buildings using this dangerous method. Watch these the Videos below.

 

Pesticides- "Nerves System Toxins"


Referred to as Conventional

Treatments

Though commonly used, the pesticide approach often requires multiple visits and may not always be effective due to pesticide resistance and the ability of Bed Bugs to disperse from pesticides. Simple put, Pesticides do not work. According to a 2005 survey, only 6.1% of companies claim to be able to eliminate bed bugs in a single visit, while 62.6% claim to be able to control a problem in 2-3 visits. And today's Pesticide resistant Bed Bugs, those Percentages are even less. Insecticide application may (will) cause dispersal of bed bugs to neighboring areas of a structure, spreading the infestation to other rooms in your house or to neighboring units in attached housing. Furthermore, the problem of insecticide resistance in bed bug populations increases their opportunity to spread. Studies of bed bug populations across the United States indicate that up to 90% of Bed Bugs are resistance to pyrethroid insecticides, which are used in the majority of bed bugs cases is widespread. Dr. Stephen Kells from the U of M has found that it takes 1000 times more Pesticides to kill today's Bed Bugs than it did 30 years ago. Wholly shit Batman, Pesticides do not work and are very toxic to humans, especially to children under 6 years old. There is a risk of the user having an allergic reaction to the chemicals, not to mention other possible health risks including cancer and acute neurotoxicity.

Concerns over the possible health effects of pesticides on people and pets, as well as the dispersal of bed bugs to neighboring dwellings due to repellent effects of insecticides, make the practice of chemically treating the mattresses problematic

Exterminators often require individuals to dispose of furniture and other infested materials, but the Bed Bug Guys tell you NOT TO THREW AWAY ANYTHING; saving you money. We do such a great job that we have a 30 DAY GUARANTEE TO BE BED BUG FREE OR WE WILL COME BACK AND RETREAT.

Pesticide resistance

Bed bug pesticide-resistance appears to be increasing dramatically. Bed bug populations sampled across the U.S. showed a tolerance for pyrethroids several thousands of times greater than laboratory bed bugs. New York City bed bugs have been found to be 264 times more resistant to deltamethrin than Florida bed bugs due to mutations and evolution. And a study done by Dr. Stephen Kells from the U of M found it takes 1000 times more pesticides to kill Bed Bugs today than it did 30 years ago.

A population genetics study of bed bugs in the United States, Canada, and Australia using a mitochondrial DNA marker found high levels of genetic variation.[17] This suggests the studied bed bug populations did not undergo a genetic bottleneck as one would expect from insecticide control during the 1940s and 1950s, but instead, that populations may have been maintained on other hosts such as birds and bats. In contrast to the high amount of genetic variation observed with the mitochondrial DNA marker, no genetic variation in a nuclear RNA marker was observed. This suggests increased gene flow of previously isolated bed bug populations, and given the absence of barriers to gene flow, the spread of insecticide resistance may be rapid.

Steam

Steam treatment can effectively kill all stages of bed bugs. Unfortunately, bed bugs hide in a diversity of places, making steam treatment very tedious, labour intensive and time consuming. There is also the risk of the steam not penetrating materials enough to kill hidden bed bugs. The steam may also damage materials such as varnished wood, or cause mold from the moisture left behind. Requires repeated and very thorough steaming of the mattress, box spring, bed frame, bed covers, pillows, not to mention other materials and objects within the infested room, such as carpets and curtains.

Cryonite© Freeze Treatment
Also known as "CRY AT NITE" because you are still getting Bitten by Bed Bugs and Crying all Night

Cryonite® Freeze is the newest technology for getting rid of bed bugs without the use of harsh pesticides or chemicals.

Cryonite® Freeze uses the extreme cooling properties of liquid CO2 (carbon dioxide) to instantly kill bed bugs. In the system liquid CO2 is transformed into an exceptionally cold, dry ice snow that freezes the bed bugs to death. The CO2 snow is not poisonous and leaves no wet or gummy residues.

When the CO2 snow hits surfaces at normal temperatures it evaporates and becomes CO2 gas. During this process energy is required and this heat energy is extracted from the immediate surrounding. The energy is taken from bed bugs in the surrounding and extreme cooling results, the water in their cells crystallizes to ice,

 

 

 

General information

The insect family Cimicidae contains species commonly called bed bugs, bat bugs, and swallow bugs. Bed bugs are found in temperate and tropical regions worldwide. The 91 species in this family are wingless, obligate hematophagous ectoparasites that feed on bats, birds, and mammals. The word Cimex is derived from the Roman designation for bug and lectularius from the Latin name for couch or bed. Only 2 species, Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus, readily feed on humans but others may rarely do so as well.

Adult bed bugs are oval shaped, flat, and approximately 1/4 inches long. They resemble unfed ticks or small cockroaches and are easily visible, even to the untrained eye. Adults are reddish brown (chestnut) in color, whereas immature ones called Nymphs are much smaller and may be light yellow to almost clear. They have a pyramid-shaped head with prominent compound eyes, slender antennae, and a long proboscis tucked underneath the head and thorax. After a blood meal, the bugs may increase in length by 30% to 50% and in weight by 150% to 200%.

By nature, bed bugs are stow-a-ways. They enter homes or apartments by hiding out in the cracks and crevices of luggage, furniture, clothing, pillows, boxes and other objects when they are moved between apartments, homes and hotels. Bed bugs hide during the day and typically feed at night. Since bed bugs feed on blood, their presence has little to do with the cleanliness of the home, although clutter can provide hiding spaces for bed bugs and make them difficult to treat. Bed bugs can survive for up to 16 months without feeding, so they may be present in vacant, clean homes when new tenants unpack. Once bed bugs are established, they rapidly reproduce and spread from room to room.

Bed bugs can be very difficult to control, . Many insecticides are not effective at killing the eggs, so a repeat treatment is often necessary to kill the juveniles after they hatch. Even worse, some populations of bed bugs have developed resistance to common insecticides, making some sprays ineffective. Alternative methods include heat and steam treatments, structural fumigation and cold treatments.
